In thinking about yourself never adopt a standpoint whereby you consider yourself as a separate entity from God, hoping, if you pray hard enough, that you will be at the receiving end of more good. The co-existence of God and man, Principle and idea, means that man has exactly the same access to the experience of good as does God. Man is the outpouring of Truth. Man does not have to struggle to stay with Truth: he lives as Truth in self-expression. And the onus of perfection lies with Truth and not its idea.
